Sunflower butter will surprise you! It’s a good alternative to the classic peanut butter, probably the most similar in taste and a great heart-healthy choice. Sunflower seeds are concentrated sources of fiber, antioxidants, phytosterols, heart-healthy fats, plant-protein and especially selenium, vitamin E & B-complex vitamins. One serving (2 tbsp.) contains 32% DV* of thiamin, 18% of folate, 38% of vitamin E, 13% of niacin, 22% of vitamin B6, 26% of magnesium & 21% of phosphorus. That´s a whole lot of nutrition in just one serving!


Yield: Approximately 1-1/4 cups / 284 g

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raw sunflower seeds (270 g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)
